The Morning of Your Wedding

Before The Wedding Flowy
The caterer is setting up, the photographer is already snapping shots, and your groom is hidden away with his boys getting ready for your wedding. Those few hours before your ceremony starts and your girls lead you down the aisle are crucial. You’ve planned, prepped, and Pinned every detail and the show is about to start.

The last thing you need is to deal with small snafus and messes… like wiping fresh eyeliner all over face when you’re getting dressed.

A simple step to avoid makeup on your shirt or your hair being messed up is to get ready in an easy-off shirt. Choose something you can zip off or pull up that won’t even touch your flawless winged eyeliner or pinned up curls. Customize a before the wedding design on any of our zip-ups or loose-fitted flowy shirts like the flowy tank top or a flowy lightweight top.

Before the Wedding

Other tips and tricks to make the morning of the wedding run as smoothly as possible:

  • Have each bridesmaid assigned to a vendor. Sarah will answer any questions or deal with concerns from the caterer. Kirsten will help the photographer get all the right shots. Laura will make sure hair and makeup is on time. And so and so forth.
  • Have a written out list of the shots that you absolutely want from the day. And make sure Kirsten has it to give to the photographer.
  • Have checks for all of the vendors ready (including the tip) and put in separate, labeled envelopes.
  • Round up extra extension cords from the house or home improvement store the week before the wedding. Bring them to your venue because who knows if the caterer might need one, or your curling iron or your stringed lights will reach the available outlets.
  • Pack an emergency bag just in case. Scary truth is that any number of things can wrong at the last minute. Be prepared with a bag dedicated to extra needle and thread, an extra bottle of nail polish, bobby pins, lipstick, eyeliner, bandages, tape, flip-flops, and some pain relievers.
  • Make a playlist! Put together a few hours long playlist with upbeat music and some oldies for you and the girls to get ready to.
  • Give yourself enough time. Either start your ceremony in the later afternoon or plan to get up early, just be sure to schedule yourself plenty of time to get ready. Most wedding day horrors can be cleared up before guests arrive if you just dedicate a couple of extra hours for mishaps and messes.
